Monika Gloviczki

Bethlehem Oil on Canvas 40” x 30”

Monika Gloviczki’s paintings turn landscapes, buildings and people into intriguing, seductive patterns. Working in oils and acrylics on canvas and panel, the artist has a strongly distinctive style of handling her paints, with intricately arranged blocks of color forming images that bridge the worlds of realism and abstraction. Able to precisely capture the details of a leaf, building or human face, she is also able to give color, light and texture an existence of their own, resulting in works that have a multitude of layers and meanings.

Gloviczki calls her work “silent music played by colors,” and the sense of internal rhythm and harmony in her paintings makes that description quite apt. From clear, almost translucent areas of color to thick strokes of paint, she provides each work with a sense of visual counterpoint. Her clear, balanced compositional style provides a solid basis on which her bold experiments in texture and tone are built. The goal of those experiments, she says, is to lead viewers on a journey into her personal world, to make visible what lies beneath life’s everyday banalities. Having worked for many years as a doctor, she is now devoted to sharing the joy and happiness of that journey in her paintings.
